, the folks that were elected with us, the senators that have arrived in the last five or ten years. i think we have the ability to respond in a big, bold way to the crises that face us. and i know senator merkley, you came here a young man with senator hatfield i believe and you saw a different senate. maybe you could talk about that and we don't want to stay, i know we're going to a caucus and we have our generous chair here, so we don't want to keep her up there too long, our presiding officer. anyway, senator merkley, i yield. mr. merkley: i think my colleague from new mexico is absolutely right in pointing out there were periods when the senate really worked to address the big issues facing america. and it wawnltd that there weren't -- wasn't that there weren't profound differences. there were fierce differences, emotional differences, deep differences but folks came to this floor, they conversed, they laid out their arguments and ultimately they made decisions about which way to go. and they didn't bring the attitude let's just paralyze this chamber from doing doing nothing. had they d
. >> commissioners, item 8, election of the president of the small business commission. allows the commissioners to elect a member of the commission to serve as president of the commission, requires a motion and vote. >> commissioner o'brien? >> director, would you like me to read the procedures into the record? >> no, will you please read the procedures. >>> commissioner issues will read the procedures into the record. the commission will vote on president followed by vice president. for each position the secretary will call for nominations. the next nominees will provide statements and other commissioners will make comments. following this, the commission will hold public comments, finally the secretary will take a roll call vote in the order of those nominated. the first commissioner who receives four votes for each respective officer position will hold office for the next 12 months. if nobody does, the process will be re-opened and the process will be repeated. i have a tracking sheet that will be used to track the votes. >> commissioner o'brien? >> so at this point we can nominate, ri
that what we are celebrating is not the election or swearing in of a president, but what we are doing is celebrating each other and celebrating this incredible nation that we call home. after we celebrate, let's make sure to work as hard as we can to pass on an america that is worthy not only of our past but also of our future. god bless you guys. i love you. we will see you tomorrow. (applause) >> the president and the first lady the vice president, the second lady seeming chipper after his official swearing in earlier today. this party was a candlelight vigil. it's not exactly a vigil, it's more of a party. there are a lot of people in that room who paid a lot of money for this inauguration and prior to tonight to get barack obama re-elected. to get a flavor of what's going on in the room these are individual and corporate donors. to get tickets to this event if you were an individual if you wanted the washington package in addition to a couple seats to the parade or other items you had to donate 250,000 dollars if you were a corporation you had to donate a million. the packages wen
before women got the right to vote. and now we just had a historic election where there are more women in congress than we have ever had before. it's really an incredible movement, and i work at emily's list, and emily's list has been working on it for 28 years to get more women on the pipeline. and we are picking it up. >> sam, it seems to me that the president was almost like an ich bin ein berliner speech. he's a man of color himself. but to embrace all of this together, i have never heard any of it -- none of this they. there was no they. it was all we, a lot of we. >> keep in mind, i thought the theme was that change can spark from the individual. in all these cases you have change being a grassroots entity, but it has to have a component of the state and government to help foster it, and the line that really stuck out to me was these truths can be self-evident, but they're not self-executing. what he made was a case for why there is an important role for the government to play to basically protect our rights but also to advance us as a society whether it's on climate change, immi
the election season. he went on at a time of deficits being front and center to talk about debt and deficits on capitol hill. he was very aggressive defending entitlement such as social security and medicare and medicaid. in this address, the president signals he believes he has a mandate. he will be aggressive about pushing change in the second term. >>shepard: some of the change, can you make the argument it could happen? republicans are coming around on immigration issues. the polls suggest gay rights issue is taking a turn, as well, right? >>reporter: no question. he was able to pass the health care bill in the first term. the second term, in part, will be about implementing that law that republicans opposed but, obviously, chief justice roberts was the justice that helped decide that, in fact, it is the law of the land. the president, we should note, suggested he is going to reach out to republicans. he started the day at st. john's church across lafayette park, a little prayer service, and the pastor talked about how the pastor in chief in recent days in places like newtown, connecticu
if -- if they reject sort of uncompromising positions or sharp partisanship or always looking out for the next election and they reward folks who are trying to find common ground then i think you will see behavior in congress change. and that will be true whether i'm the life of the party or the stick my the mud. >> the life of the party, krystal, nothing drives me crazier than this myth, than geez if you would just sit down with the guys -- >> it is the tone and the lack of civility, you know that, right? >> you know, i saw guys who were great friends, real friends vote against each other in a second. it doesn't solve the problem. >> sure, sure, i mean the real dynamic here is the political calculus that is underlying all of this, for house republicans it makes all the political electoral sense in the world for them to be totally unreasonable and go as far right as they possibly can, because they're not worried about a general election or worried about the center of the country. they're worried about the right flank, thanks to newt gingrich who started it all off, the growth of the tea party, making s
are up for re-election in north carolina or out west or down south or wherever they're from, i don't think he can lift it. and can that's what i'm talking about in terms of overreach. if this was something where you said close the loophole on gun shows, catch the 40% of people who are going into the shows and escaping, buying guns if they're mentally disturbed and we should catch that and reasonable restrictions. the problem in the heller case and what d.c. was doing is they said you couldn't have a gun unless you registered it, but then today wouldn't let you register it. i mean, that's an effective you can't do it. and that does, in fact, go too far. so if it's a common sense -- and, you know, quite frankly, i don't know why ten. i don't know why somebody needs ten bullets, let alone thirty. so ten doesn't seem like some magic number to me. and, again, to the gun owners, that sounds like something somebody made up, ten. so i think that the president'stive orders -- executive orders can be accepted by the republican party, and if they did the incremental approach of background che
for the presidential election in every state they can get away with it. we have a ban on the show talking about 2016. this is a corner stone, nobody is allowed to talk about the 2016 election, at least until next november. this is not about who the candidates will be, this is about whether or not they vote for a democratic candidate, any democratic candidate, this is about whether or not it results in us having a democratic president. this is going on in the states right now. hey, beltway, wake up. now it is time for "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell. have a great evening. >>> the national rifle association is singing to new lows in the polls. and new lows in their tactics against president obama. they are now using the president's daughters. >> well, president obama trumped congress. >> the president is planning to take matters into his own hands when it comes to gun control. >> i'm confident there are some steps we can take. >> 19 possible actions he can take. >> i'm against having a king. >> president says if congress doesn't do what i want. >> somebody who wants to bypass the constitution,
to be on saturday night live. look, look, it's a troll. we see trolling sometimes in elected officials, too. when a politician says something deliberately provocative in front of an audience because they're banking on firing up a smaller group of people who enjoy the way that speaker can make that other audience feel. congressman steve king is kind of a permanent troll. >> we could also electrify this wire with the kind of current that wouldn't kill someone but would simply by a discouragement from them. we do that with livestock all of the time. >> comparing imgrants to livestock and using a visual aid to do so on the house floor. here's another. >> a poet once said life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it's never easy when there's so much on the line. >> he was trolling the entire democratic process at that point. here's oolt. trolling. congressman allen west, former congressman allen west begging america please be out raged by me, please condemn me. i live to cause pointless out rage. i am a troll. the thing about trolling is that the troll, by definition, is not serious. they
in november when the election was framed on social issues, they won't think about this. we are trying to use the kids, lack of a better term, as the national props why the politicians are stealing the money. my generation is going to inherit so much money that we never had a chance to earn. we have to pay that off through working extra hours and standard of living will be lower because of that. neil: your generation, guys like your age and my daughter's age or you're a little older than those showcased today, but not a lot older. you are their big brothers and sisters, and you are trying to send a message to the president that, look, this is something that bears attention as well. when you say that, and you just point out that a lot of young people don't agree with that, they like this president, they don't seem to be focused on this spending, what's that say about your generation? >> i think my generation has been not educated properly, first of all, but, also, my generation does not care about the issues, and they are going to have to face a hard reality soon. when they graduate college, t
to do which is represent the people of the united states. we have a democratically elected republic and people need to pull out their history books and find out what that is and realize that when we send them to office, would give them the authority to vote the way we feel and if we feel they are not representing our opinions and needs, we need to replace them. thank you very much. host: stephen dinan will be joining us at the bottom of the hour. later, author and historian richard norton smith will dig in the details of the second term and what this president could be facing. this headline is from "the washington examiner" -- the public information officer for the u.s. capitol police is joining us on the fund. guest: for having me. host: we look at the seams around washington, what can visitors expect tomorrow? guest: they should expect that we will do our best to protect people. give time to get through lines and things of that nature. host: this is a map we found this morning in "the washington post." the area in red it will be the high-security area. many of the roads around the
. to hithe legislature, letting tm know where he stand on it. lou: as you should, you are an elected official as well as sheriff of the county. >> correct, being sheriff is a unique position, only elected law enforcement official in the country. lou: and the sheriffs play a vital role in law enforcement, most people know and are appreciative of. you have expressed concerned about the executive orders of the president, you have concerns about number 6, says public a letter from atf to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks on private sellers, they were pretty well prepared if are that letter, weren't they? >> i believe so, that will require a lot more explanation on their part. if that indicates that they are pursuing, prohibiting private sale and transfer, among private parties it will be interesting how they approach that. lou: this is a letter from the justice department, saying, to all who hold licenses, federal firearm licenses, that they are going to be engaged in providing background checks, going to the national background check system of the
everything. >> rose: and what did it change for you? >> y know, i got elected in '94 and i'm sure you remember, charlie, in 1993 you had waco, you also had ruby ridge, you had a couple of incidences, tragedies, that really inflamed the right and made gun ownership far more symbolic. for me, though, over the past year it wasn't just newtown, though newtown was really the final straw for me, the tragedy of that day, it was also the fact that a realization as a parent that it's not safe now to send our children to schools or to send them to malls or even movie theaters or religious services. that what once was the exception is now becoming the rule. we can expect these type of mass shootings as a part of american life and i personally believe it's a combination of many things frfrplt violent american culture to mental health issues to gun issues. i think that's one of three issues. ideologues on both sides will disagree with -- take exception to one or two of those problems, but for me that is not about symbolism anymore, it's about saving children's lives and if it's true that dick chen
a breath, threat leaders that have been elected do their jobs. nobody wants to pay anymore taxes. they take 38% out of my check every week in taxes. i get back maybe $1,000 if i'm lucky. the president has a lot on his plate. he is one man speaking for 600 million. how is that to get up in the morning and realize you have everybody in the entire united states looking for you to make the right choice. host: the population in the united states is 300 million. caller: i'm sorry, even 300 million, that's one man speaking for everybody. he's got to make the right decision every second of the day. that's impossible. the country -- the laws we have in place, they've been there. they do work, just everyone has to abide by the laws. everyone should be treated equally. hypothank you for your calls and comments. a tweet -- hypocoming -- host: coming up we'll be talking about the fiscal situation in their cities and the comments yesterday by vice president biden who addressed the 300 mares in attendance on guns and gun violence. and late ter president's promises, what did he fulfill in his first term. a
look at immigration. those were the pieces of the coalition that really gave him the election so he was saying in many ways he's going to stand up for the very things he ran on. >> the things he ran on, the things he won on. and when you look at sort of the victory model, the formula that went into the 2012 victory for obama, that's the future of the democratic party and future of america. if the republican party wants to succeed again at the national level, they will have to make inroads to the groups. and here's president obama saying not only did i campaign on these groups but now it's time for me to deliver on these groups. and if they don't meet that challenge -- begin to meet that challenge in some way, all of these groups could be lost to them permanently. >> now, last night on the show, i talked about how there was good reviews, but i didn't think it would last. and before i could get out of the studio, they started -- the republicans -- taking shots. let me show you where respective paul ryan responded to the president's takers comment at the inaugural address. >> no one is
't think the debt ceiling should be negotiable, simply because the president won the election, congress also won reelection. it should not be. it's under a false premise. if the debt ceiling is not raised, that we would go into default. that's not true unless tim geithner air this id will actually follow the law and pay the service on the debt and collect more money in taxes. every quarter when corporations pay their taxes, he can pay the debt with that. he can pay social security and pay for the military and the current cwars and medicare and medicaid. beyond that, everything is up in the air. he can do the things that are required. simply because the president decides he wants it raised because it has been raised in the past for other people, that is like saying we will ever be responsible, because if you win an election, automatically get what you want. it does not work. you cannot run a country where every site gets whatever it wants just because they win. host: a tweet -- caller: it's not money already spent. there's a difference between actual spending and proposed spending. when
: big election day today. voting is underway in israel for the country's next leader, current prime minister benjamin netanyahu voting today. expected to win re-election but with a smaller majority than in 2009. results are expected in this afternoon and we will have them for you live whether they happen. bill: in our country now the president setting up the next round of big budget battles. mr. obama defending the role of government in reaffirming support for major entitlement programs, the drivers of her debt like medicare, medicaid and social security, leaving many to wonder if any of d.c.'s spending will decrease. in fact democratic senator chuck schumer already suggesting that taxes may need to go up again to pay for all those bills and all that spending. stephen hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard", and fox news contributor has been on this. steve, good morning to you. how are you doing, post inauguration day? >> doing well. bill: give us a sense about what we can expect to happen in your town next. >> well, i think very little. you're looking at a spending, spending trend
of those folks there is lost. that, the president won election. you could even go so far he won the right to raise taxes on the rich. he didn't get a pass, nor did washington get a pass on addressing underlying spending. it almost seemedas if they're reading into the election that, and it worries me. should i be worried? >> you should be worried. more importantly the american people should be worried. when i watch the president's second term unfold, i feel like i'm watching an episode of laugh-in or "saturday night live." because, neil as you point out, every other day we hear from the credit rating agencies, that debt and spending is threatening the future of america and our credit rating and our ability to continue to lend money to the world, right? and we hear from corporate america. joe has just made the case for small business owners. and corporate america is sitting atop of almost $2 trillion in cash, because everybody is afraid. they don't know where this train wreck of a second administration is going. and back to the president. he sat there in fiscal cliff negotiations with speak
, at the 16th of january, we have 28 finally deaths. when i became mayor, when i first put my election, and mexico the term is usually three years. my state is the only state that lasts for years. we decided we needed to change the model and made that a partnership and assign the retired general to become chief of police. a couple of months into the new administration, we had the police force, police officers didn't want to work with the general. and of course we were wondering if it had to do some with low wages for the betterment of the working conditions. the strike was orchestrated and they didn't want to work under a military chief. we have to take a very tough decision because there was something totally out of our hands. what we did is we decided to fire and to disappear the police officer department. of course after they heard i had taken the decision to disappear, they decided to go back to work and we justify one condition. you can go back to work if you do three things. number one. number two coming take a polygraph and number three can be said that due to an economic invest
for election again, so the next four years, you got the sense that he was going to push for social change and you heard him use the word "together" at least seven times in his speech. he's going to be calling on americans for the next four years to be hammering it out with their local congressman and their local senators to try and push issues like gun reform immigration reform and for the first time, we heard a president use the term gay for gay marriage ever in an inaugural speech. so it was a different tone than four years ago. >> brandi hitt live for us. thank you, brandi. some folks said it seemed more like a state of the union address than it did an inaugural. he hit so many policies, whether it was climate change, the gay rights issue, equal pay for equal work, immigration reform. he referenced newtown, which obviously is the gun control battle going on. so he covered a wide range of things. he hit it hard, too. more of a progressive speech than a centrist speech. which some republicans are not going to like. >> you can do that on your second term. >>> later this half hour, we'll t
is that when you see that 71% of almost 12 million voters the last elections, voted for one political party, and that group that voted 71% for one political party, is the fastest growing group in the country. already 50.5 million strong. 18 years of age equals voting age. if they think they can ignore the concerns of a large portion of this country or simply use words like am midwesty, i can't even deal with talking about it, then they'll got something coming. they may become the minority party for generations to come, and i'm not sure that any politician that sits down worrying about their future really thinks they want to be a part of a party that has no shot at national office because of something they could today choose not to do. >> you know, bringing to us our panel many new york here. steve, one of the things -- frank luntz had an op ed in the washington post with lots of tips, if you will, for the republican party. one of the things he says is you can't tell people to self-deport. they are not asking for open borders or blanket amnesty. they just don't want to be regard as criminals
this. >> i don't think he's said anything. he's been a big supporter of president obama in the election campaign last year, but i don't think welfare reform and the reversal of reform ever came up. i don't know what he thinks about this. >>steve: this could be one of the indicators why fitch is talking about down grading the u.s. debt once again. >> precisely. fitch says this is a rating agency, okay. watch out america. your triple a rating is under threat from my agency because it doesn't look like you can get your debt under control. >>steve: run-away spending. >> up 80% on welfare, $11 trillion extra in the next ten years, an astronomical amount of money. >>steve: big number. you're a big guy. can see him every day at 9:20 eastern time over on that fox business network. >>gretchen: the government destroyed its houseboat to build a fancy new waterfront. the supreme court ruled on its case and the outcome? it could affect many of you. >>steve: lance armstrong admits he's a big, fat liar. now you at home could pay the price. we'll explain as we wheel on live from new york city. [ male a
at the bit. sitting at the edge of the seats. they want to elect women. i see that here in my race in new york city and women are ready. when you see the debt crisis, we need more women in office and washington to simply get things right. >> we need more women in washington and in office. i totally agree with you. we won't end up, steve, with an all white male democratic primary. i want to see a female president. i want to caution against knowing what a mind will do because of the body attached to it. are we assuming that every woman politician is great for woman? what an a woman anti-feminism, anti-choice, would we almost that? >> 2016! >> female equivalent of what clarence thomas is for black people? we won't want that. we want a politician good for women's issues as much as a woman to break that barrier. >> can i just say, poor joe biden? everyone is clamoring for hillary to win. he is the current vice president. and if she doesn't now, democrats are saying, who else can we find? i'd be like, i'm right here, people. look at me. can't catch a break. >> thank you for being with us. >> th
